What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What's the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?
 Buddha

The virtues, like the Muses, are always seen in groups. A good principle was never found solitary in any breast.
Buddha

Virtue is persecuted more by the wicked than it is loved by the good.
 Buddha

The wise ones fashioned speech with their thought, sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve.
Buddha

Unity can only be manifested by the Binary. Unity itself and the idea of Unity are already two.
Buddha

  • There is no spoon.
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, he said:
“Man.
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
You have to let it all go Neo.  Fear, doubt, and disbelief...  Free your mind.

Oh that is so true, for many of us, I am trying to work on that myself.

I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.

Buddha
...

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.

Buddha
...

The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.

Buddha
...

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.

Buddha
...

Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence.
